Saturday, December 11th marked the official beginning for the JV and Varsity Cedar Springs Competitive Cheer teams. Both teams competed at Comstock Park on Saturday for the CCCAM (Competitive Cheer Coaches Association of Michigan) Scholarship Invitational. With only four weeks to prepare three rounds of material to perform for the judges and the crowd, the Red Hawks had a lot to get finished.
“It’s nice to finally have scores from judges to see what we need to continue to work on throughout the season. It gives us a good starting point with the judges feedback,” said Coach Pam Ingles.
Comstock Park was one of six locations around the state that hosted a CCCAM Scholarship Invitational. All the money raised from the team entry fees, spectator fees, and t-shirt sales is put towards the scholarship fund. Last year $30,000 was awarded to seniors throughout the state! That is the largest scholarship amount given away from any high school coaches association. CCCAM is hoping to give away more money in scholarships this year with adding additional sites for the competitions.
JV and Varsity both won their division at the competition to start off their season! JV scores were: rd 1 – 170.3, rd 2 – 151.8020, rd 3 – 235.3, total – 557.4020. Varsity scores were: rd 1 – 205, rd 2 – 203.0870, rd 3 – 265.3, total – 673.3870.
Their next competition will be on Saturday, January 8, at Cedar Springs High School.
